On Thursday, we were notified that Ben’s emigration permission paperwork has been approved!
The official word is 2-4 weeks until a travel call, but in tracking other families’ timelines, I have noticed it usually is more like 10-12 days. Based on that, we hope to travel in 2-3 weeks!
We are having one more fundraiser – a concert – next week. Hopefully, that will bring in the rest of the money we need for travel, post-placement visits, and an attorney for finalization.
It’s a little crazy to think about doing post-placement visits and paperwork for finalization while trying to put our house on the market and look for a new home in Florida…so I just won’t think about that right now. 🙂 We really can’t move until the adoption is legal, which takes 6 months. So the house stuff goes on the back burner with the familiar, “It’ll be fiiine” mantra in our heads.
I get to meet my son this month!
